Study Detail

TitleDifferent types of diatom-derived extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) drive changes in heterotrophic bacterial communities from intertidal sediments
Study TypeOther
Abstract Microphytobenthic (MPB) diatoms exude large quantities of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) comprising polysaccharides, glycoproteins and other biopolymers, which represent a substantial carbon pool. However, degradation rates of different EPS components, and how they shape heterotrophic comm .. [more]
